Oh, happiness a weekend in Breckenridge with near perfect weather. Mountain biking, fall colors and knitting. Can you believe it, after my leg warmer knitting problems. I used the forum on knittinghelp.com, solved the ribbing bind off problem and started a hat, my first.
Myself and two friends are knitting hats for One Heart Foundations "Warming Families", which knits clothes for the homeless. I thought this was a perfect first hat project, they even provide a pattern.
See this blog for details and the pattern, if you want to join the fun.
A new ball of yard from Fancy Tiger a quiet weekend at the cabin and WooHoo a hat! My model was a little reluctant today!
My favorite part are the stripes. One to represent you and one to represent the recipient, so they know they are never alone.
